Pre-Project Funding

GCE Ocean Technology provides financial and professional support to establish externally funded RDI projects.

Our partners and members can apply for pre-project funding from GCE Ocean Technology to develop and conceptualize collaboration projects.

The funding should be used for preliminary work aimed at gaining external funding for a main project, from sources like Innovation Norway, the Research Council of Norway, EU or similar.

We especially encourage joint projects between several companies and R&D partners, as well as projects with international partners.

Our support is typically in the range of 100-300kNOK and comes with a requirement of similar in-kind contribution.

Please do not hesitate to contact us at an early stage to see how we can contribute. In many cases we support companies in finding and applying for external funding.
